Newcastle Star Wins Goal Of The Round As New Stat Reveals His Importance

Allan Saint-Maximin’s dramatic winner in extra time against Oxford has been voted the FA Cup goal of the fourth round.

The 3-2 win on Tuesday had five sensational goals in it. Sean Longstaff’s opening goal was outstanding, as was Oxford midfielder Nathan Holland’s late equalizer.

However, it’s Allan Saint-Maximin’s astounding winner that has been voted as the best. The Frenchman’s strike saved us from the lottery of a penalty shoot-out.

WhoScored has tweeted the following statistic showing just how valuable the 22-year-old is to Newcastle.

It’s astonishing how much better Newcastle are with the winger in the team. We have just one win without Allan, and that was the 1-0 win against Crystal Palace at St James Park in December.

Newcastle have 24 points in the 12 games he has played and just 7 in the 13 he hasn’t. To put that in perspective, if Allan stays fit and the lads continue to pick up points at this rate, we would finish on 57 points by gaining 26 in our final 13 games.

    He needs something to make him angry – like an equaliser – he wouldn’t run in 2nd half before that.

    Couple of things to address oh dear – Essex first

    ” BBS

    I get that you were having a bit of a laugh over me and OLGs UFO chat and that doesn’t really bother me, I’ve heard it all before.

    But why do you have to keep on about Munster’s son, whats he done to you?”

    Let’s get this straight, I do not “keep going on” about his done,bits the first time I’ve ever commented on something I picked up on which does make me wonder – according to Munsters lifestory timeline he must be 65+. Which makes him an old dad. And as also pointed out elsewhere, he seems to quote him as being of different ages but maybe that’s because time has gone by. I dunno.

    Second – and this took me a while to type through the tears you understand – Munster you actually thought I was saying your son…this is taking me ages sorry just can’t stop laughing as I type this…was procreating with a 65 year old! Oh no it’s too much I’ll have to come back to this one later sorry I promise I’ll compose myself ha ha ha ha…

    Oh Essex and i forgot to mention, silly me eh, you’re a flaming hypocrite with the perceived air of a nice old codger. Where was your indignation when Munster was doing his level best to bully me and others by insults and with every kind of profanity and relentlessly pushing his “Tarquin” thing (snobbish plastic fan)? Nowhere. Doesn’t cut it getting all indignant with me over an idiot like Munster. Stick to your little green druids from outer spaaAAAaace.
